Be Myself Again

  • Let me introduce myself
    I'm a woman that you've never seen
    You might know me from somewhere else
    As someone that I've never been.

    I gave everything to play the game
    My soul fell apart at the seams
    I fell down like a house of cards
    When somebody pulled the queen.

    [Chorus]
    'Cause you could spend your life
    Lookin' for your own reflection
    Time could blur the lines
    Between what's real and what's projected
    Had I known what I lost?
    What I gained, what it'd cost
    I'd still give what remains
    To be myself again.

    You must believe me when I say
    Don't live someone else's design
    Turn it around like a photograph
    The writings been there all the time.

    Now you can have all these hopes and dreams
    The ones I can't use anymore
    I don't know what it is you lost
    But I hope you got what you came for.

    [Chorus]

    Sometimes I want to leave right now
    Sometimes I want to cry out loud
    I want to let it all hang out
    But I don't want to let you down.

    Sometimes I want to just lay here
    Sometimes I want to disappear
    I want to show you all my fear
    But I don't want to let you down.

    [Chorus]

    To be myself again... Writer/s: HECTOR, MENDEZ, SUMMER
